Overland Crossing in Thailand for ASEAN

Posted by Baksi on 27/5/2017 at 03:55

"In late 2016, Thai authorities went further by introducing a rule that bars citizens from non-ASEAN countries from crossing into Thailand overland and receiving visa-exempt stays more than twice in one calendar year. If strictly adhered to, this restriction will disrupt the plans of some regular travellers, who will now be forced to acquire a tourist visa or arrive by air if entering Thailand for a third time after already entering overland twice on visa-exempt stays, regardless of how much total time is spent in Thailand."
This restriction had been applied (was told by Immigration offier at Savannakhet-Mukdahan crossing in Apr 2017) and apply to Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia (member of ASEAN) as well. So not true only for non-ASEAN countries.
